Nagorski, who was Newsweek 's Moscow bureau chief from May 1981 until August 1982, joins a growing body of correspondents such as Michael Binyon ( Life in Russia , LJ 5/1/84) and Kevin Klose ( Russia and the Russians , LJ 3/1/84) who have chronicled their experiences within and their impressions of one of the most enigmatic societies. Nagorski differed from most of his colleagues in his ability to speak Russian, his eagerness to travel outside the major cities, and his willingness to meet all sorts of Soviet citizens: academics to dissidents to black marketeers. He also was the first American reporter expelled by the Kremlin since 1977. An extremely readable and personal account of one journalist's struggles with a markedly different tradition. Recommended for young adults as well as adult general readers. James R. Kuhlman, Univ. of Georgia Lib., Athens

YA Originally published in 1985, this new edition contains new material to put in perspective the new Soviet policy of ``openness.'' Nagorski argues that this new policy is really just the old policy with a new approachthe Soviet intent was and still is to prevent independent reporting of the U.S.S.R. This book remains an entertaining and informative look at a fascinating and complex society, and especially at the day-to-day lives of its people.
